What participants have to say:
"Katherine Abbott eases the struggle of learning a new subject. She does not just present the material but she walks you through it. She does not just hope that you learn the subject but through feedback she makes sure that you understand it. Her satisfaction is not based on how well she knows the subject but how well you learned it. All of these characteristics make her the ideal instructor."
- Erik Herazo, Data Services Manager, BD Worldwide
